I'm looking for a synonym of 'get' which implies that the object or action is received unintentionally, or that it's undesired. Does such a verb exist in English? Yes, I checked the thesaurus, but I didn't find anything that satisfied me.

The closest word I can think of is 'take' as in, "The car really took a beating this winter." But it just doesn't usually work outside of idioms like 'take a beating/licking'.

Catch

>He will catch a beating
>You will catch a cold
>I caught a felony charge

Very informal.

Receive can fill that niche, depending on context.
>You will receive a beating
>I received some very bad news
>you don't want to be on the receiving end of this
>hopefully I don't receive a beef bukkake today

Depends on the object received.

There's no word that specifically contrasts "get" with "get unintentionally" as in some prefixing languages.

cost are incurred
beatings are suffered
gifts are received
hits are delivered

Strictly speaking, received is just the French parallel of Saxon get. They're still almost entirely interchangeable although gotten is rarer in the passive voice than received.
